Minks to Sinks, the largest outdoor tag sale in Connecticut and an institution in Wilton, opens in less than two weeks, on Saturday, May 6. Minks to Sinks fans know that this sale is the best place to find deals on everything from Lillian August sofas, Trek bikes, Cuisinart appliances, fine china, collectibles, kids toys, to seasonal clothing and so much more. The event offers hundreds of thousands of gently used and new items, including top quality brand names, at bargain prices.

Janel Cassara and Michelle Beck, the 2017 Minks to Sinks co-chairs, as well as the over 190 volunteers who staff the sale, have been busy preparing for the event. They will be accepting consignments and donations at the Minks to Sinks site, under the huge white tents, at the intersection of School Rd. and Rte. 7 on Tuesday, May 2 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.; Wednesday, May 3 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. and 4 p.m.-6 p.m.; and Thursday, May 4 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m..

The sale is a great reason to clean out closets, attics, drawers and garages.

“One of the many aspects I love about the sale is that it’s a wonderful way to recycle because items people don’t want or use anymore find new homes. It’s really true that one person’s trash is the next person’s treasure!  You never know what you’ll find when you shop at Minks to Sinks. It could be an item you’ve always wanted, or something you never knew you needed, but you now can’t live without!” says Cassara.

Anyone wishing to consign or donate items is encouraged to go to the Minks to Sinks website, to review the list of items accepted before bringing their merchandise to the tents. The Minks to Sinks sale opens at 9 a.m. on Saturday, May 6.  Bargain days are Sunday, May 7 from noon-4 p.m. and Monday, May 8 from 9 a.m.-noon.
